What are the odds on us getting sheff. wednesday in the play-offs-sods law says it will happen if we're lucky enough to get there-and nice to see brucey showing all the doubters on here just what a good manager he was and is.

Low. 3rd v 6th and 4th v 5th means would have to be the final if we both got in. Leeds/ Sheffield United will be the favourites going into it.

Played one game less than us and are 1 point behind us, yes the shadow of steve bruce looms large, promoted from within and after a shakey start, and losing their best defender to bournemouth (and blanking us and his ex-boss), brentford seem to be clicking and ticking without any dramas, after today's game deano says he 'had to give' the players a rocket at half-time to gee them up, here's an idea 'mr. plan A-only'give them a rocket BEFORE the game you spoonhead! -as for why i mentioned bruce and brentford, it occurs to me that whenever bruce has been at another club with less money to spend and hence less choice of players, he finds a system that works with what he's got, so the squad mostly picks itself, comes to us and with so much choice, i think he got a bit befuddled, he'll do well at wednesday, as for brentford, the players are playing for the manager and the jersey, they believe, and again with a smaller squad their a tight unit, so here's a thought, trim the squad and bin the big names, sheffield united did that, fulham did that, leeds did that, norwich did that, seems to have worked for them going forward, i'm sure many will say ney, but what we're doing at the moment is spending big just to tread water, somethings' got to change, personally for me all this possession doesn't mean squat if there's no end result, get in someone like jokanovic, no nonsence, but again its just me then having the crazy thoughts!

Alot of what you say is probably is probably not far off the mark, many on here me included wanted change after a poor start to the season. We definitely would have expected a new manager to change things for the better, obviously this has not happened, this is not to say it won't. This season should now be used to plan for the future and this is where we should judge Smith, if by the end of the season there is absolutely no improvement, (which based on current form is highly likely) then we would have to question if the future is bright.

Good analogy scotty, problem with that is that he will still be using the same players he is having the problems with now.
He should really be given at least another window and up until Christmas to see how his remodeled side is taking shape.
I would think by then the team he has, would or should consist of at least 80%, maybe more of his chosen imports.
Then I think it is fair to say we can be a bit more judgmental.

Disagree if things carry on the way they are untill end of season get rid and bring in guss hiddink or bigsam who does a good job every where he's been or even vangaal. we need a manager who the players respect and a manager that can handle the pressure and some1 that has been there and done it like leeds who appointed bielsa and wolves with nuno who did a good job with porto . that way then we might have more faith in the manager and trust him, deano is a nice bloke but not cut out for the villajob, yes there not his players but he should be getting more out this crop of players, he started off good but its gone stale now personally if he did go at the end of season i'd give bigsam the job he'd sort this club out and kick there bcksides . either way it going to be a tough couple of seasons ;nxt season no jck, tammy;tz, mings, maybe mginn aswell so its going to hard replace jck, and tammys goals, unless our scouts unearth sum gems, with right manager we could flourish and especially with our youth set up, but untill then we will be mid table team at best.

V4 a feel your passion and understand the frustrations, I was in exactly the same camp, however the sensible voices do make a good argument to give deano a full transfer window, if after this we can then say we gave him a chance. We are a basket case so let's not react too quickly. This season is gone so let deano earn his corn and show us what he has got, if he fails and we have given him a fair chance then there can be no complaints from him or the fans.

True mate.

Great shout, scotty and you A4.
Fingers crossed, let's hope it all works out, I love apple pie not too keen on humble pie though.

To all you fellas saying write the season off and promote the u23's-you got more chance of us ground-sharing with the noses, with the talent we have, you're saying their not good enough like deano! -any manager worth his salt would adapt and crack on, and why hasn't he tried the u23's, because he doesn't trust them and being honest, they'd be a liability, any player with some vim would be forcing their way into the team-grealish for example? -their lazy and content to wait for something to happen rather than MAKE it happen with graft, look at forest today, got a draw but by all accounts should have won against preston, its the MANAGER that makes it happen, its plain to see our manager can't coax players to play a full 90 minutes,63% of possession today and what have we got to show for it, and don't start making excuses that if tammy or whoever had scored it would have made the difference, teams know how to exploit us, deano has been found out and he's too arrogant to put his hands up and change his system, we are becoming a club of mediocricy, deano's days are numbered, the new owners aren't schmocks, wouldn't be surprised to see him gone before the season is over-thats showbiz.

Posted before but can't seem to get my password sorted so hence a new name on here, for what its worth i don't think dean smith will ever be a massive success with us simply because he's also a fan-one of us, its a rod for his back, we'll always hold him to a much higher standard, at the time we should have moved heaven and earth to get chris wilder in, but that's done and dusted, as for the players not being good enough, don't talk tosh, scott hogan at brentford was a tasty centre forward, he comes to us and under bruce stagnates, he then gets in the manager who inspired him AND still he's a shadow of himself, grealish will never fill his full potential unless he moves, and why? -because we're living in cloud cuckoo-land about who we are and where we are, a manager worth his salt would walk into us and realise we're a basket case, 'all the gear and no idea', instead of getting the players there to fit his system, any quality manager would find a system to fit the players until the season is over, so that for me says that smith may be a half-decent manager but he's too arrogant and complacent to adapt even just for the short-term, i'm not saying bring in a devisive manager, but one who will make the players want to play for him, not be their mate, again for me a manager like chris wilder, someone who'd make players bust a gut for the full 90 minutes, not bring in players who think their doing you a favour every week, putting in a half-arsed effort for 10 minutes but trousering 30 grand plus a week-thats called fraud to me, but each to their own, it will be interesting to see what o'neill does at forest on bugger all money, my guess is a damn sight better than the spongers we'll end up with, and just to put the icing on the cake, gary monk at the noses, i HATE to admit it, but he's doing a cracking job, and out of interest how much has he had to spend? -our arrogance betrays us, we're too lazy and complacent for our own good, we're at our rightful level now, get used to it unless the preverbial rocket up the posterior ensues, i love this club, i don't love what we've become-fundamental change is needed before its too late to wake us up out of this lethargy.
